Wedding Sermons and Marriage Ceremonies, Volume 2
Derl Keefer and Randy Hartman
Rev. Derl Keefer pastored in the Church of the Nazarene for over 30 years. He currently serves as the Adult Development Ministries Coordinator for the Sunday School Ministries department at the Church of the Nazarene Global Ministry Center. He received his B.A. in Religion from Southern Nazarene University and his M.Div from Nazarene Theological Seminary. His other books include Let's Get Committed, Wedding Sermons and Marriage Ceremonies, and Open Doors. Dr. Randall Hartman, D.Min., M.Div., is a Baby Boomer riding the wave of transition from a long established career to an encore career. After serving 30 years as a successful minister he resigned and became nationally trained to lead churches through transition. Dr. Hartman started his own blog to assist other Boomers in transition.
When a pragmatic planner like Rev. Derl Keefer and skilled homily writer like Dr. Randall Hartman collaborate, the effect is a resource that provides all the nuts and bolts of a wedding ceremony with the power and beauty of meaningful scripture woven throughout. For ministers working with couples who desire a high degree of direction, Wedding Sermons and Marriage Ceremonies, Volume 2 is ideal as each ceremony includes top-to-bottom instructions, from processional music to the sermon, vows, prayer and recessional. It is also a treasure trove of ideas for couples who need a spark of inspiration to develop a unique ceremony of their own. Each of the 12 ceremonies in this volume is centered on a unique theme based in scripture. Titles include: • God’s Law of Love (Ceremony 1) • Establishing a Lifetime of Value (Ceremony 2) • Prescription for a Successful Marriage (Ceremony 7) • Marriage Is More Than a Dream – It Is Love (Ceremony 8) • God: The Foundation of Marriage (Ceremony 9) “Wedding Sermons And Marriage Ceremonies Vol. 2 offers one of the most practical tools a pastor might have at his/her disposal. Whether it is a couple blending a family, seeking to renew vows, or any variation in-between, the Scriptural and well thought out ceremony elements provide a never-ending resource to established and new pastors alike. It will be my “go-to” resource in wedding planning for years to come.” Pastor Richard B. Doering, Racine Community Church of the Nazarene
Christian Pastors who are helping couples prepare and plan their weddings.
Book cover type
Other color requirements
I've provided the cover of the first volume as a .jpg for reference. I've also provided a PDF of the second volume for reference. This is the cover that we want to have redesigned.
I have attached a previously designed cover for this book to show what was done previously. One of the authors DOES NOT like this cover, so I'm looking for something different. I will also provide a shot of the front cover from the first volume that was published a number of years ago.
What to avoid
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
David.Runk collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
